From the Desk of Teacher-in-Charge

My dear students and their parents,

I have got an additional opportunity to serve my country from this Chair. As a teacher, my duty is to participate in building the nation because our nation is being nourished in the schools and colleges of the country.

competent workers and law-abiding citizens. You know that your teachers are the guardians of yours. They are deemed to be nation-builders. Our college has a reservoir of a kind, caring and highly qualified staff. I have a firm belief in them that they can materialize our mission.

Once upon a time Nakashipara was a centre of culture and literature. Pandit Madan Mohan Tarkalankar and Jagat Chandra Majumder and many others took leading role in education system of Bengal. Even today, cultural and literary activities of this area are avowedly known to the rest of the state.

Despite our glorious past in the field of culture and literature, this area was deprived of modern higher education. In the year of 1986, the long demand of common people for a College was met with the establishment of Bethuadahari College.

The College was established in the month of October 1986 and thus catered the service of higher education for a vast area of land. It was the first higher educational institutions sixty kilometers along the NH-34 (from Krishnagar to Beldanga).

But, the College could not flourish according to the expectations of the grass root people and education loving folk of the society. Immature students’ politics, first generation learners, inadequate infrastructure, limited financial resources and insufficient number of teaching and non-teaching staff told upon the rate of growth of the College. Thus, the academic growth of a thirty years old College is not good enough.

The expectations of the local inhabitants are still with us. The teaching and non-teaching staffs are trying their best to improve the quality of service rendered by the College. The students are also getting interested in going with the tune of the teachers. The teacher-student relationship is at present good.

My advice to our students is that the College is meant for them. They should be regular in their classes. They should concentrate on their studies. They should take advantage of the College Library and Departmental Libraries.

The College has installed a modern gymnasium. The students interested in developing their physiques are welcome to use the gymnasium. The Yoga & Meditation Certificate Course is running since 2017-18. The interested students are taught without any fees in this course. Similarly, Bethuadahari College Computer Literacy Centre is providing a Certificate Course on Computer Literacy for Third Year students.

The College is worried about the placement problem of the passed out students of the College. The Career Counselling Cell is trying to grow interest among the students about different types of jobs. The Vocational Education Training Centre is helping our students to acquaint with several rural livelihoods like mushroom cultivation, bee-keeping, vetiver grass cultivation and handicrafts training.

The College recently initiated English (Hons) course and Education (Program) Course at the UG level. The College will be able to start science stream if everything goes well.

The College is now proceeding for NAAC assessment. Everybody is putting heart and soul effort on improving the quality of service. The College Library has been digitalized. A Contractual Librarian has been appointed. We have received two full time teachers, namely, Sri Rony Sarkar in the Department of Political science and Mirza Hasan Alam in the Department of English from the West Bengal College service Commission after a long gap (2001). No doubt, it has increased our strength.

I know students, irrespective of their caste, religion, political affiliation are the asset of this College. We are trying to develop their competence in education, culture, health and personalities. We hope that we shall be able to bring massive qualitative changes in them so that they find themselves as responsible, efficient and skilled citizens of India after passing out.

We are thankful to all guardians and parent who have kept faith on us by sending their wards to our College. We shall try our best to earn our credibility by providing quality services to your sons and daughters.

Warm regards to all
[Dr. Suhas Roy] Teacher-in-Charge Bethuadahari College, Nadia
